I am using ubuntu 20.04. I want to launch google chrome always in incognito mode by default. Is this possible in ubuntu. I read its not a common practice to do this. And will it have any effect if we use selenium chrome driver for scraping purpose if opened in incognito mode.

Note : Since I am new user please upvote the question to get me more features opened.

Thanks in advance


You can amend /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop so it runs

google-chrome --incognito

But it will be replaced on Chrome updates.

So make a copy of this .desktop file and name it differently.
